Third episode verdict: Happy Hour

Posted on September 22, 2006 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Not much's changed since the first episode of this one, which didn't overly impress me. It didn't help that Fox showed episode two and episode three out of order, resulting in some very odd behaviours for the characters.

I do kind of like it. As mentioned, there's an inner sadness to most of the characters that does make you feel sorry for them and if you forget the laughter track, it's actually an interesting drama with occasional comedic moments. But as a sitcom, it's really not very good.

Avoid if you're looking for laughs; watch if you want to see the tears of supposed clowns.
